Biography: The ‘Thunder Show’ (if you have any idea what that is) got me first into actually tasting wine, and I must admit I still swish and chew on it like GV did from the start. From there the complexity and minutia captured my attention, and I began to systemically explore grape by grape and region by region. I have gone in and out of phases only to come back full circle to where I started. Current interests include Burgundy, Priorat, Champagne, Bordeaux, and traditional wines from Tuscany as well as Bordeaux varietals that have been transplanted to the region.

Best wine collecting lesson: Buy and drink one or two bottles before you buy one or two cases.
